Forum: etree Subject: How can I download a complete concert in one click now?

What is with the downloading of a whole show on the LMA now? I have to get each song individually? What the..
I just got a Little Feat show one song at a time--is this the only way to do it now? I'm only interested in SHN and FLAC files by the way.. And as soon as I figure out "port forwarding" and can do the bit torrent thing, I probably won't care about the LMA anymore, but it's nice for certain bands, Larry Keel, Leftover Salmon, Grateful Dead aud tapes only,
Matt

I ran into the same problem. DL Mozilla and add the extention Down Them All. Then, when you open the Little Feat show or any other for that matter, click on the FTP to the left of the show where lossless used to be (and apparently will be back soon). The last LF show I did had cd1 and cd2. Open one, then right click and you should see Down Them All in the option box and click on it. Up should pop the flac ,vbr, m3 and ogg files for each song. Click the little circle to the left of the flac file for the songs, save them to a target file or folder and you can at least download the whole sets. I can try to help you with the port forwarding deal to, but don't give up on this great site so quickly. Let me know if you have trouble with the Mozilla( Firefox) or Down Them All. Good luck and good listening. Check out the Little Feat 10/14/78 )among others) if you haven't already.

I don't really want to have a different internet whatever-you-call-it: Firefox. THat would mean I have to use that instead of internet explorer, wouldn't it? Or could I just use it for this internet archive site?

And thanks for the suggestion of 10-14-78 Little Feat--I haven't checked that out yet.
Do you have any Zappa that you would like to trade through the mail? I have some good ones, and some Project Object!
Thnaks for the advice-

Firefox is free, works on all types of system, and works WAY better than Microsoft Internet Explorer. I suggest you check it out. http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

And the new DOWN THEM ALL extension is cool as heck! Works great!

You need to have Firefox installed first.

(1) You can have both Firefox and Internet Explorer installed. Just make sure you don't click something that makes Firefox the default browser (it may ask you at some point). I've got both on my desktop, since Micro$oft requires IE for some of its own sites. Who knows, you might find yourself migrating to Firefox.

(2) If using DTA as JodyC suggested, it speeds things up to define a new filter to select just those files you'd typically want to download .. e.g. shn or flac, txt, md5. I gave an example on another thread, or just follow the example of the pre-defined filter. (I don't have time to hunt this up now .. I'll try to do so later and add it here.)

OK, here's what I wrote before, in "SHN and FLAC -Now What?", slightly edited ---
To create a filter in DTA, start it going by right-clicking somewhere in the page, or using the Tools menu, and then click Preferences in the lower right corner. Then in the left column of the Preferences window, select the Filter icon, Add new filter. Give it a name ("Caption" -- I used LMA), and then using the built in examples to show syntax, type in the "Filtered extensions". Took me about 5 minutes to figure out, and I'm no whiz.
(Alternately, you can get to Preferences from the Tools menu, DownThemAll sub-menu.)
The specific filter that works for me (most of the time, i.e. unless there are odd files I want like images) is
/(\.(shn|flac|txt|md5|xml))$/
You may not even want all of these.


(3) I didn't use DTA until this recent change in the LMA, but now that I have I find it quicker and easier than the old zip-archive method. I don't think I'd go back to that even if they reactivate it.

The extra feature where you can downloadg files in chunks and auto-reassemble them really speeds things up, eh, almost Bittorrent-y? (For big movie files here in the other collection, that is the way to go too BTW.) And no confusing unzipping after that, or an extra zip copy lying around adn filling up your PC!

Ah - so that's what the "chunk" variable in the options was. I wasn't sure.

General question: is there a (smooth) way to search in a forum for our own posts (or posts by any given member)? Or posts with given content? I was trying to find the post I referred to a little bit up the thread, but find it's not trivial. Cancel that -- I just found the answer totally by accident. Simply click on my own name if I have a post listed in the forum. (But what if I haven't?)

Forum: etree Subject: Re: forum search trick

way to search in a forum for our own posts (or posts by any given member)?

Go to any forum view where you can see a highlight on a patron name. Click the name. If it's the person you want, you're good, you will see all their posts:
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/forum-display.php?poster=Dancing%20Salmon

If it's not the one you want, type over the unwanted name in the url with the patron you *do* want. Add %20 for spaces, and other url parsing tricks as necessary (spaces are the main special thing).

Content search for the forum using the search box above is unfortunately not too robust. It's just for "a string" "another string"..., I think.
